Day 03 - 08 Feb 2018
We had hotel breakfast on the last day and they serve pretty good food though.
It was time to check out and leave Kaohsiung. We checkout and the hotel booked an large taxi for us to the train station. We alighted and head over to took the train which we had reserved seats on our first day. Well to be frank, Gao Xiong has nothing much. But i cant forget the taste of the Angel Crispy Chicken! It is amazingly good. If i were to be back to GX, definitely is the chicken cutlet. Mums like to buy at the Cijin. The Fruit stall was good too.
There is stall selling food at the train station you can get them to eat on train ride to Taipei.
Well the ride to Taipei Main station is only an hour odd plus. The moment we reached taipei main station we got to transfer to the metro line and took one station to XiMen. Upon exiting, it was just so familiar feeling. Although shops changes pretty much.
We than check in to the westgate hotel, we were rather early as we arrived at 12 plus the rooms were not available. Thus, we left our belonging with them and head out to one of my favorite spot to have sashimi! We took a cab instead of going via bus.
